2014 Lakefair President's Message:
"As the 2014 Capital Lakefair President it is my honor to welcome you to this year’s festival and activities. Lakefair’s theme this year is “Thanks for the Memories” and we are celebrating and giving thanks for the 57 years of local community support and also the support of our surrounding communities. Without this support Capital Lakefair would cease to exist.
Our goal this year is to not only express our thanks to the community and volunteers for the help and support these past 57 years, but to also actively encourage the community to step up and join the Capitalarians as we work to develop a stronger festival and events of which we can all be proud. The Capitalarians have worked hard to promote community spirit and pride and have also worked hard to give back to our communities through the Royalty Scholarship program and by supporting local non-profit groups. These programs will only continue with the help of new members and volunteers. It is time for the community to come together and join with the Capitalarains as we transition into a new era.
So I would encourage each of you to reflect on the Lakefair of the past and the vision for the Lakefair of the future. It is only with your support and willingness to join the Capitalarians that Lakefair can continue and grow into the future.
Again, my wish is for each of you to enjoy this year’s festival and activities to the fullest and to consider actively supporting or joining the Capitalarains as they work for our communities’ futures."
